The month of January 2018 has been very difficult for the crypto-currencies have seen their value terribly fall. But some, like John McAfee, the creator of the software publisher that bears his name, remain very optimistic. Himself says, by the end of the year is 2020, the Bitcoin will be worth 1 million dollars.
Of about polemics
John McAfee is very optimistic and remain enthusiastic about the value of Bitcoin. Indeed, despite the fall recorded for several weeks about the values of digital currencies, the creator of the McAfee software is convinced that crypto-currencies are going to explode. He has just affirmed that the Bitcoin could be well worth a million dollars by the end of the year 2020.

Why ? The specialist cyber-security has developed a predictive model in which he has a confidence without limit. To such A point that he declared that if the Bitcoin did not reach its target price by the end of the year 2020, he “would eat his b…” for a national tv channel. A rather provocative to show to what point he is sure of himself !
Many are those who openly criticize the forecasts of John McAfee, saying that the man speaks without offering the slightest evidence. And must admit that seeing the value of Bitcoin to be multiplied by 100 in three years seems to be rather delicate. But the man persists and signs in his predictions.
John McAfee has decided to leave his position of head of information security within the MGT Capital Investments. Will now focus on the activities of mining. It also offers a range of products based on the famous technology BlockChain.
On the 25th of January last, he said : “In five years, more than half of the world’s population, I guarantee you, will use crypto-currencies. And the other half, which is not going to use them, will be the half that will likely have neither a smartphone nor internet access. “
Lot’s of people asking me over the past two days whether my bet is still on (that I will eat my dick if Bitcoin does not reach $1 million by the end of 2020). ABSOLUTELY!!! It is a bet that I cannot possibly use. Use your heads people! Run the numbers that crypto folks well know.

For the moment, the value of Bitcoin continues to fall. Even if it has experienced a slight rebound at the end of last week. That said, many specialists claim that each large drop is always followed by an increase, like Tom Lee, whose analyses are taken very seriously. And if John McAfee was right ?
